Censorship, misinformation and disinformation are now commonplace in the mainstream media. Here are a few truths which you probably haven’t seen on the awful, unbalanced and shameful BBC and the utterly discredited YouTube:
- There is no little irony in the fact that one apparently respectable world organisation is begging the public for money to help deal with the human crisis in Ukraine when another apparently respectable world organisation is considered responsible for the war that is causing the human crisis in Ukraine. You couldn’t make it up, could you?
- The MCC is flogging tickets for cricket matches at Lords this summer. The tickets for the match between the men of England and the men of Australia is almost sold out but, and this will surprise you not at all, there is `good availability’ for tickets for the match between the women of England versus the women of Australia. This proves my long standing contention that no discerning person is interested in women’s cricket matches, and the fact that they are organised and promoted with such absurd enthusiasm is a sign of commitment to political correctness rather than to good business sense. I can think of just one sport played by women that is anywhere near as popular as the same sport played by men. The single exception is, of course, beach volleyball.
- I mentioned the other day that it is hackers from Canada who try hardest to close down www.vernoncoleman.org. There are more attempts from Canada than from the US or the UK. Who on earth have I upset in lovely Canada?
- The NHS has agreed a deal to buy a new gene therapy with which to treat children with a rare condition involving their nervous system and organs. The treatment costs £2.8 million per patient – far above what the Government usually reckons a human life is worth. Those cheering this news might like to wonder what will happen when there are hundreds of new treatments available (which there will be), all costing £2.8 million per treatment or more. Within five years the entire NHS budget could be spent on expensive gene therapies for a small number of patients. Meanwhile, millions of patients needing simple, effective, relatively cheap remedies for heart disease, cancer and blindness will have to go without. It all fits the plan, of course.
